Accessible Attractions | The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh is one of the easiest attractions to experience at Walt Disney World and Disneyland for wheelchair users. The attraction and the ride vehicles are a little different at each park so we’ll take a look at both.

Magic Kingdom

The Basics

Location: Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom Park

Height Requirement: Guests can be any height

Alternate Entrance: No

FastPass: Available

Accessibility Category: May remain in wheelchair but ECV users will need to transfer to available wheelchair

Transfer Rating: No transfer required

Transfer Device: No but there is an ADA ride vehicle that allows you to stay in your wheelchair

Find out that each of these categories mean in our accessible attraction guide.

Entrance and Queue

At the Magic Kingdom you enter using either the standard queue or the FastPass+ entrance. The attraction loads pretty slowing so the lines can back up later in the day. I would either visit in the morning or get a FastPass+ time later after you’ve used your other three for other attractions.

Ride Vehicle

Once you get to the loading area let the Cast Members know that you would like to stay in your wheelchair if you want to use the wheelchair access vehicle. You may have to wait a little longer depending on where the vehicle is. If you are using an ECV you will have to transfer to a standard wheelchair.

The accessible ride vehicle has a wide door on the side so you can roll right in. There is only one seat inside so if there is more than two people in your party they will have to ride in another hunny pot. The regular attraction vehicles have two rows that can seat 2 to 3 guests.

Disneyland

The Basics

Location: Critter Country in Disneyland

Height Requirement: Guests can be any height

Alternate Entrance: No

FastPass: No

Accessibility Category: May remain in wheelchair but ECV users will need to transfer to available wheelchair

Transfer Rating: No transfer required

Transfer Device: No but there is an ADA ride vehicle that allows you to stay in your wheelchair

Entrance and Queue

At Disneyland you also enter through the standard queue since it’s one of the newer attractions. The ride vehicle here is different but they still have a wheelchair accessible one so you can remain in your wheelchair. Just let the Cast Members know you would like to use it.

Ride Vehicle

The accessible ride vehicle has a space for the wheelchair and an additional row behind it that can fit one, maybe two other guests. The Cast Member will rotate the wheelchair space so you can enter and then rotate it back so you are facing forward. There are rails on each side but it’s a smooth ride. The regular attraction vehicles has some movement but that has been disabled on the accessible one.

I like the ride vehicle at the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh a little more at the Magic Kingdom since you can ride next to someone instead of in front of them. But both attractions offer great wheelchair access and are fun dark rides.

    Hey! Thank you, I’m glad its helping. If you can transfer you can just leave your wheelchair where you load, you get out in the same spot. For attractions that have a different loading and unloading area a Cast Member will bring your wheelchair to you, Pirates of the Caribbean for example, or in some cases you since you are in a wheelchair you will get on the attraction at the exit, Buzz Lightyear and The Haunted Mansion are two like that. Let me know if you have any more questions. 🙂

      I am so very glad that I found your blog. I am 52 and am going to Disney World for the first time. I have a form of muscular dystrophy and have oxygen and bipap machine. This is my first time to try such an adventure . I will be reading everything I can find to ease some of the apprehension of the unknown . We are staying at animal kingdom lodge and are hoping that the accessible rooms have enough room for me and my machinery. My sister and daughter will be my care providers and my 15 year old niece is also coming. Any new advice or warnings would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

        Animal Kingdom Lodge is one of my favorites. If you are concerned about room size I would visit Touring Plans. I think they have the square footage of each room. Disney World is a great place if you use a wheelchair. I hope you have a wonderful time!

    Hi and thanks so much for your blog. It is a great help!
    I have one question – if I can transfer myself to the ride without my wheelchair, can I just leave the wheelchair in the same area where I enter the ride? (As seen in your first picture?)

    Bill finds turning with his power chair a bit difficult in this ride vehicle.

    Would you ever do a video of your self going around most of the Disney parks where you go most offend?

    My friend (the one I sent your way with questions) has adorable pics of her kids in their power chairs in the hunny pots! Such a cool ride!
